Gunnel uses three levels of analysis that delineate technology's political influence: 1) "political power tends to gravitate towards technological elites"; 2) "technology has become autonomous" and thus impenetrable by political structures; 3) "technology (and science) constitute a new legitimizing ideology",

Impressions of Herbert von Karajan was the first substantial film biography to be made of Karajan during his lifetime. The film does not set out to over-glamorise Karajan. Nor does its narrative follow any particular theme or chronology. It does, however, provide a succinct overview of Karajan’s many activities and interests, whilst at the same time introducing us to the conductor’s family and to a number of his long-standing professional associates.

Brand is a priest who accepts the consequence of his choices, and is deeply bound to doing the "right thing". He believes primarily in the will of man, and lives by the belief "all or nothing". To make compromises is therefore difficult, or questionable. Brand's beliefs render him lonely, because those around him, when put to the test, generally cannot or will not follow his example.

In 1949, Stalinist Soviets began a systematic sweep of Romanian college campuses. Their purpose was to imprison and transform young Romanians into a communistic way of thinking. One prisoner describes this re-education as the most vile tortures imaginable. In this documentary, you'll meet three survivors from the prison of Pitesti and see shocking paintings that capture the essence of the extreme torture.

Ernst Jünger’s The Forest Passage is a call for resistance. It maps a strategy of opposition to oppressive power. Undertaking the forest passage means entering an anarchic realm beyond the control of the seemingly omnipotent state, while setting oneself apart from the masses who sheepishly obey the rulers’ commands. The few who can tap the inner strength to fight back become “forest rebels,” partisans pursuing freedom against unconstrained power.

Liberalism is not equipped to meet and overcome the actual challenges confronting Western civilization in our time. Liberalism has been and continues to be primarily negative in its impact on society. The guilt that is always part of the liberal syndrome swells painfully when liberals gain power and find that the world's sorrows show no tendency to vanish at their sovereign touch. Liberalism's inaptitude for power bears directly on the crucial fact: that the issue before Western civilization...

In 1962, the young Eugene Rose (the future Fr. Seraphim) undertook to write a monumental chronicle of the abandonment of Truth in the modern age. Of the hundreds of pages of material he compiled for this work, only the present essay has come down to us in completed form. Here Fr. Seraphim reveals the core of all modern thought and life–the belief that all truth is relative–and shows how this belief has been translated into action in our century.

This document helps us to answer a question: “How did the Communists capture one-third of the world’s population by 1950, given the fact that Lenin had only a handful of followers in 1900?” This question raises others: “How did the Communists mobilize the support of Western intellectuals, Russian terrorists, and peasants in Asia, Africa, and Latin America?” “How did an explicitly atheistic movement gain the degree of emotional commitment of its members that had previously been...

Written in 1994, Carmen Hermosillo's "Pandora's Vox" was prophetic at highlighting the Internets role in: The dissolution of gender. The creation of ideological echo chambers. The censoring and manipulation of online discourse. The commodification of human interaction by big-tech. The resulting conflict from a world of plural moral systems coming into contact Follow me on twitter for the latest books:  https://twitter.com/NeoOccident

Cowed by life under Communist Party rule, a greengrocer hangs a placard in their shop window: Workers of the world, unite! Is it a sign of the grocer’s unerring ideology? Or a symbol of the lies we perform to protect ourselves? Written in 1978, Václav Havel’s meditation on political dissent – the rituals of its suppression, and the sparks that re-ignite it.

Written in 1909, E. M. Forster's "The Machine Stops" is a tragically prophetic meditation upon the consequences of man's over reliance upon technology. It describes a world in which humans have lost the ability to live on the surface of the Earth. Each individual lives in isolation in a 'cell', with all bodily and spiritual needs met by the omnipotent, global Machine. Follow me on twitter for the latest books:  https://twitter.com/NeoOccident

Ever wanted to learn about the revolution from the British perspective? Ever wanted to see the declaration of independence debunked by a primary historic actor? Ever wanted to watch the mythologies of the American revolution, be divested of their mythical visage; and have the true political realities laid bare? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then Thomas Hutchinson's "Strictures Upon The Declaration Of The Congress At Philadelphia" is the book for you! Follow me on...
